Windows 7 Officially the Fastest Selling OS in History

Paul Lilly

Pause for a moment and count to 10. All finished? Assuming you counted in accurate 1-second increments, Microsoft sold 70 more copies of Windows 7 by the time you finished. All tallied, the software juggernaut from Redmond has sold over 150 million license of Windows 7 to date, making it the fastest selling OS in history with 7 copies sold every second, Windows Communications Manager Brandon LeBlanc wrote in a blog post .

"Approximately 75 percent of enterprises are looking at Windows 7 for their organization, and of course people continue to be excited about the features and benefits of Windows 7, and the PCs that our partners are delivering for Windows 7," LeBlanc added.

Back in March, Microsoft said it sold 90 million copies of Windows 7 before updating that number to 100 on April 23, just two months ago. At the current pace, Microsoft is unloading more than 25 million copies of its flagship consumer OS every month and is on track to sell 300 million Windows 7 licenses by the end of 2010.

So much for the death of the PC.
